CA - Flight From L.A. Makes Emergency Landing : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread

From Associated Press

An American Airlines 737 en route from Los Angeles to Orlando was forced to make an emergency landing at Midland International Airport on Sunday after a cockpit indicator light signaled a fire in the jet's cargo bay. No injuries were reported when Flight 2044 landed about 1:20 p.m. There was no fire, and the problem apparently was a malfunctioning indicator, American spokeswoman Andrea Rader said. Passengers left the plane at the terminal, Rader said. Members of the Midland Fire Department scanned the luggage as the air carrier's personnel checked the cockpit light.
